Professor Cohn returns to The Monitor to discuss the nomination of Samuel Alito to fill Sandra Day O'Connor's seat on the Supreme Court.

<> 6:35 pm CST -- ELLIE SMEAL on the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court




Ellie Smeal is president of the Feminist Majority Foundation. Feminist Majority and the National Organization for Women and the National Congress of Black Women, are coordinating Freedom Winter '06, part of a joint national campaign to block the confirmation of Samuel Alito because of the serious threat they feel he poses to the future of women's rights and civil rights.

For over two decades, Ellie has played a leading role in both national and state campaigns for women's equality. She has fought for passage of landmark legislation such as the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Equal Credit Act, Civil Rights Restoration Act, Violence Against Women Act, Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, and Civil Rights Act of 1991. She has pushed to make Social Security and pensions more equitable for women, and to realign federal priorities by developing a feminist budget. She has campaigned to close the wage gap and to achieve pay equity for the vast majority of women who are segregated in low-paying jobs.

As president of the National Organization for Women, she fought for the ERA. She led the first national abortion rights march in 1986, drawing more than 100,000 participants to Washington, D.C. In December 2001, Ellie Smeal, Gloria Steinem, and Ms. Magazine joined forces and Feminist Majority Foundation became the sole publisher of Ms. magazine.
